was sort of against itself in the last minutes when they were calling ohio and karl rove almost himself had a bit of a tantrum saying that there was no way that ohio could have gone for president obama, megan kelly had to go back there and talk to the folks who actually had the facts and say, in fact, that ohio did, in fact, go to president obama. i think there is some soul searching going on there. i think that's correct. in 2011 with that exit of glen beck, who, of course, went on to his own network. and now with sarah palin, kind of the declining fortunes of the tea party and this inability of the tea party and the conservative right to find purchase and find a wider audience. you know, rush limbaugh's power is in this called 20 million viewer -- listeners that he has. i don't know if it's 20 million, 15 million. it might be 2 million. but i think democrats have been very expert at putting rush limbaugh and fox news at the head of the party, and you haven't seen much push back from republicans. in fact, you see ruby, of course, going out there today and sort of going to rush limbaugh and
in that inaugural address. you know, nobody has used the word yet, partly because i think karl rove fouled it after 2004 when he proclaimed there was a political realignment in this country. but i think there has been a political realignment. it's an obama realignment. and as i've heard you say before, i think this is now a center left country. the president's right on all these issues. republicans are kind of having a nervous breakdown, don't know what to do about it, so they're playing these kinds of games. >> well, it is our new theme here on the program. yes, we do say let's get to work. but let's call it what it is. this is a center left country. the issues are very progressive that people are polling very strongly in favor of. and another theme out of the republican party is victimization. i mean, you've got boehner and you got ryan and you got limbaugh. all seem to think that president obama is out to just destroy the gop. what a weak presentation of where they are, i would say. >> well, first of all, it would be impossible to victimize rush limbaugh. he is the great -- he is the great guy w
karl rove, who is now an umpire, he agreed and said republicans must have more than an anti-obama message. let's listen to the oracle, the architect. >> i think he's right. he was talking about todd akin of missouri and richard mourdock of indiana and their terrible comments on abortion. the republicans can't be in mindless opposition to president obama. it has to offer a vision of the future that is attractive and compelling for americans to associate with. >> the problem is that the vision jindal and rove are talking about hasn't changed. only their messaging has. while jindal talks a good game, paul krugman pointed out yesterday jindal is proposing eliminating louisiana's income tax, which is paid primarily by the wealthy, and replace it with a sales tax designed to hit the poor and working poor. you're doing the same old hoover stuff, tax the people that get hit the hardest by economic recession and exempt the top people who make incomes, big incomes. >> but that's not necessarily been borne out in states like texas and new hampshire and elsewhere that don't have a state
complete dysfunction. the "new york times" reports that the karl rove-led american crossroads group, which spent over $170 million in 2012 to questionable results is setting up the conservative victory project, an organization with the goal of recruiting less extreme candidates. crossroad president steve law said "our approach will be to institutionalize the buckley rule. support the most conservative candidate who can win." an important caveat. the buckley rule has its opponents, namely adhere ens of the limbaugh rule. rush's 2010 counter edict that you vote for the most conservative republican in the primary, period. rush's rule was pronounced not surprisingly on the day of the christine o'donnell won her party's delaware primary where she would go on to be crushed in the general election and become the poster child for tea party folly and witches. still, word of rove's establishment maneuverings over the weekend immediately wrainkled many on the right who saw it as a distinct cave-in to dast adviserly moderates. any candidate who gets this group's support should be targeted for destruct
. the karl rove people. >> it is the people like michele bachmann and marsha blackburn from getting in there. >> stephanie: oh, jehovah god. the end of the tea party is near. >> the day is at hand. we are in the last days. your jehovah god. >> stephanie: it is the most robust attempt yet to impose a new sense of discipline. discipline on the party. oh, no! because barbaric must be disciplined. [whipping sounds] >> stephanie: there is broad concern about having blown a significant number of races. races. [whipping sounds] [because the wrong candidate was selected. we want to pick the most conservative candidate who can win. you know what they call that? that's the buckley rule, jim. >> jr. >> stephanie: right. you know what they're saying in this article. by imposing the buckley rule, electing the most conservative candidate, they may be running foul of the reagan rule, not to speak ill of other republicans. what happens when you get your buckley rule reagan rule? >> you've got buckley in my reagan. >> two great tastes that taste great together. >> stephanie: it would put a new twist on the r
